Best results are obtained on cloth made of natural fibres such as cotton or linen, but excellent results can also be achieved on synthetic fabrics. However, due to the different properties of synthetic fibres, it is best to start with paint and wash tests. If the fabric contains starch, it should be washed before painting.
To avoid painted fabric sticking to support, use cardboard or absorbent paper underneath; remove immediately after painting so that it will not stick to the fabric
Colours can be applied with brush, sponge, roller, spatula (for airbrushing dilute with Textile Medium); their creamy consistency is especially suitable for use with stencils, silk-screens and mono- print techniques.
All shades except Phosphorescent (Glow in the Dark) can be mixed with one another and with Glitter. Adding Textile Medium to the colours reduces viscosity and renders colours more transparent. Layering colours is not recommended, because overloading the fabric may interfere with proper bonding to fabric. Brushes and other tools are cleaned with water and soap. Dried paint can be removed with alcohol. Stains of Textile Colour are difficult to remove if not washed immediately before drying; the colour is formulated for permanence even without ironing. Textile colour is not hazardous to users' health or to the environment.
